Falvey Library Resources for Disability Pride Month

July is Disability Pride Month. Celebrated during the seventh month of the year, the Americans with Disability Act (ADA), passed on July 26, 1990, prohibits discrimination against people with disabilities. As we celebrate Diversity Pride Month, we must continue to fight for disability justice and equitable access.

The Falvey Library resources listed below amplify voices and experiences of the disability community. No list of this nature could ever be comprehensive, but we hope the links below serve as a starting point. As Dr. Carlie Rhoads writes, “The disability community is hurting from a lack of representation…This representation extends from our day-to-day lives, to employment, to government, to positions of leadership, and even media of all sorts. This month affords us all a great opportunity to lift up the disability community and shine a spotlight on people who are often marginalized, forgotten, or explicitly discriminated against. All voices should be equally given a chance to speak!”

For more Disability Pride Month resources, read Annie Stockmal’s blog. Looking for a specific resource? Please feel free to get in touch with our librarians at ref@villanova.edu.
